“Probably the best week of my life”

From the very beginning we knew this was going to be a good trip as the owners contacted us to tell us about their lovely home and things to do, which instantly put us at ease. They were very friendly and were willing to answer any questions we had. They put us in touch with the manager for their property who was also very friendly and willing to help at any time. The house is beautiful, it is in such a lovely location overlooking both the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea. It is close to anything you would require, although we would recommend hiring a car as the roads are quite dangerous and having a car makes life a lot easier. The tips that were written in the handbook they left us made our trip. The secret beach they told us about was probably the best beach I have been on in my life, and the pig tour they recommended was an absolute must do. The house has everything you could want or need, air conditioning, hob, oven, kitchen, freezer, digital tv and washer/dryer. It is very cosy and would be good for a small or larger party. Having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean was a welcome break from being back in rainy England! I could happily stay in this house the rest of my life, and leaving was a very sad day.

“Perfect hideaway spot.”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This house was in great shape and off the beaten path enough to be private. I went with my brother and nephew for a week and had a blast. I'll definitely return with my wife and daughters.

Wonderful home in paradise. Beautifully furnished--Margaret has a wonderful touch and it is clear that you are staying in a home that is loved by its owners. Wonderfully situated on an island full of magnificent, deserted beaches with the best swimming EVER! Bliss. Margaret is wonderful and so very helpful. We will return!

The Hummingbird House was clean and well stocked w/ kitchen basics and lots of beach towels. Living up to it's name, lots of Hummingbirds! Beautiful flower garden, gorgeous views in all directions. Driving on the left, a bit of a challenge, and if you are a timid driver, get a bigger car! we had a small Nissan, and it did ok, but for some of the beach access roads it would have been nice to have more clearance. For those of us who like to get off the beaten path w/ huge resorts and cruise ships, this is a wonderful place to go! The Exumas are 365 cays of beach heaven. If you have boat experience, rent a boat too, we don't but we did hire several boats, and had beautiful adventures, up to Staniel Caye to the Water Reserve, swimming w/ pigs, and feeding red iguanas, quite fun. Snorkeling in the Thunderball Grotto was a real highlight! Relaxing at the house and enjoying the view, so peaceful!!

“What a dream stay!”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

First and foremost – Exuma is to be experienced staying in a home among the natural beauty and the local culture of the island.

The resorts on this island, frankly, are not that interesting and if you’re looking for that experience, then just got to Nassau (or Tulum, for that matter).

The real beauty of Exuma is with the people, the culture, the local beaches, bone fishing, fresh conch salad, and a nice sea breeze as you hangout at one of the many waterfront bars. You just won't get that at Sandals.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way – I highly recommend the Hummingbird House as a great bet. It sits atop one of the highest points on the island, giving you 360 views from the deck. A perfect place to take your morning coffee and soak up the jaw dropping view. The one drawback is that your eyes will be constantly distracted from the pages of your book as you stare off at the water, trying to do your best to define whatever color blue that might be.

The house itself is comfortable, clean, and well-taken care of. It has all of the amenities you would expect.

It is conveniently located in the middle of the island – a short jaunt from Georgetown and an easy ride to Little Exuma. The renters are kind, responsive, and thorough. You won’t be disappointed!
